Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Process Systems Engineering Laboratory
at MIT as part of the Novartis-MIT Center for Continuous Manufacturing.
The successful candidates will perform research on modeling, design, optimization and
control of continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing. Activities will be split between:
a) modeling, design, optimization and control of a pilot continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing
facility being constructed at MIT,
b) fundamental process systems engineering research related to continuous pharmaceutical
The two positions will focus on the upstream and downstream parts of the process, respectively.
The project is sponsored by a major international corporation and the candidate's responsibilities
will include frequent interaction with and reporting to the sponsor.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemical engineering (or related area) with expertise in process
systems engineering. Interested applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae and a list of at
least three referees to:
